Fairfield young offered great support

YOUTH Off The Streets (YOTS) is inviting young people to take part in their new Outreach program in Fairfield.

The Outreach at Fairfield will operate every Wednesday at Bonnyrigg Skate Park from 4pm.

Participants will have weekly access to sports, arts and crafts, music and dance, as well as other recreational activities.

A free meal will also be provided.

Founder and chief executive of YOTS, Father Chris Riley, said Fairfield Outreach was a great way for young people who needed a safe place to engage with the community.

"Our youth workers at Fairfield Outreach are really excited to be bringing fun activities to young people in the area," he said.

"They are embracing the opportunity to learn more about the needs of local youth and how best we can support them in their journey to realise their full potential."

The program's acting manager, Kim Lenard, agreed and said her team was excited about the new program.

"We're now at a point where young people can start enjoying the services we offer and, in turn, tell us what the needs and wants are of the local young people," she said.

Fairfield Outreach is the seventh Outreach to be launched by YOTS after it received $5 million from the National Crime Prevention Fund Program.
